The neural signals in visual cortex associated with positional disparity and contrast texture correlation of binocular images are the subject of this study. We have analyzed the effects of stereoscopically presented luminous bars and of dynamic random-dot patterns on the activity of single neurons in cortical visual areas V1, V2, and V3-V3A of the alert,(More)
The progressive frontalization of both eyes in mammals causes overlap of the left and right visual fields, having as a consequence a region of binocular field with single vision and stereopsis. The horizontal separation of the eyes makes the retinal images of the objects lying in this binocular field have slight horizontal and vertical differences, termed(More)
This paper presents results obtained from experiments performed on two behaving monkeys (Macaca mulatta) viewing correlated and uncorrelated dynamic random dot stereograms. Extracellular single unit activity was recorded from areas V1 and V2. We found that cells sensitive to correlated stereograms (38%) were also sensitive to uncorrelated stereograms.(More)
Delivering multimedia services over IP is expected to represent a significant contribution to final revenues of most telcos and content producers. This new paradigm of customer-made, on-demand services calls for new approaches to the whole life cycle service management. In this article an analytical method to determine the delivered quality of experience is(More)
PURPOSE Disparity sensitivity may be explained by interocular positional differences of the receptive fields (RF) of visual cortical cells or by interocular shifts of the On and Off RF subregions. Since this latter model assumes shifts are orthogonal to the orientation of the RF, cells with disparity sensitivity should be oriented. The objective of the(More)
Focal blockade of restricted regions in layer V of area 18 was used to assess the contribution of this region to the responses to high-velocity stimuli of cells in retinotopically matched, layer V in area 17. In 40% of cases, blockade within area 18 revealed responses of area 17 cells to high-velocity stimuli to which they previously showed only poor(More)
Because of the horizontal separation of both ocular globes, the projection angles are slightly different. These differences are commonly termed retinal disparities. Vertical and horizontal retinal disparities occur constantly in normal life. We have investigated the responses of single cells in cortical areas V1 and V2 of behaving Macaca mulatta monkeys to(More)
We examined the orientation tuning curves of 86 cells located in layer V of area 17, before, during, and after focal blockade of a small (300-microns diameter) region of near-retinotopic register in layer V of area 18 of quantitatively established orientation preference. Such focal blockade revealed three distinct populations of area 17 layer V cells-cells(More)
Horizontal retinal disparity is the most important cue for stereopsis. However, accurate stereoscopic perception requires additional information on fixation distance. The ocular vergence angle may provide information on fixation distance and therefore may be used to calibrate horizontal disparities. We studied the responses of cells from cortical visual(More)
Due to the separation of the eyes, temporal retinal disparities are created during binocular stimulation and they have been proposed to be the basis of several stereo-visual effects. This paper studies the sensitivity of cortical neurons from area V1 to interocular temporal delay in the awake monkey (Macaca mulatta). Forty-four cells were included in this(More)
